Problem with the mail queue

    Hi there.

    We're experiencing a problem with the mail queue administration on our plesk control panel (system-server-mail-mail queue).
    Due to the huge traffic, the queue fills up very, very fast to the point that it's impossible for us to delete it from the Plesk Control Panel. The list page goes blank, unable to list each mail and we have to trouble the server maintainers to clear the queue. Please note that this happens very often.

    Is there an option to automatically delete the mail queue in a fixed moment, e.g. every day at noon?

    Thank you for your support.

    If you're using MailEnable with the default paths you can use this in a batch file that you put in the task scheduler:
    del /f /s /q "C:\Program Files\SWsoft\Plesk\Mail Servers\Mail Enable\Queues\SMTP\Inbound\*.*"
    del /f /s /q "C:\Program Files\SWsoft\Plesk\Mail Servers\Mail Enable\Queues\SMTP\Outgoing\*.*"
    Note that "\SWSoft\" may have to be replaced with "\Parallels\" in each line for new installations.
